  • Will Facebook Offer More For Titan Aerospace? [View article]
    Good post, cl! I wonder how much "protection" Tencent has from their government; doesn't it look like a company the PLA would want a massive stake in?

    What does any of that matter, Jt? Tencent isn't one person, so they have as much chance of hiring a best-in-class to head each division as any other company. Look at how fast they've grown, compared to FB; if they make the effort to conquer western markets, FB will have a fight on its hands!

    Well, Chris, as the users will mostly own low tech receivers, it probably won't matter too much in practice, but as you say, lots of questions...

    There's a lot of strangeness here, from the "drones falling into a populated area" comment (not likely) to the lack of mention of whether these balloons would be tethered in place, or left to blow where the winds take them? It is puzzling, too that the plane with it's claimed ten+ times greater payload capacity (is this true? I'd have expected it to be the other way around...) offers a lower bandwidth. [I suppose I'd best not mention the archaic units of measurement quoted?] Strangest of all is why, given that both wish to provide cheap access (which both will then enjoy) would Google and FB would be competing over this; wouldn't it be better for both for them to cooperate, to maximise coverage? It is almost inevitable that the plane will be preferred to the balloon, in some areas, and vice versa...

    It also transpired that the method used for estimating traditional oil reserves, gives exaggerated results with fracking. There's likely to be a price shake out when this news sinks in!

  • Will BlackBerry Follow The Nokia X With A BlackBerry X? I Hope So [View article]
    But people still mostly go for the thing they tried first, as it sets the "standard", at least emotionally. True objectivity is a rare thing...

    But put in the "...at a reasonable price", and the answer changes.

    Well, the Zuck can certainly afford to, but don't hold your breath on the Fed; history shows that, in the long run, re-valuation of currency is a one way street!

    But how many times does one have to download a given app?

    Well, he did very nicely for himself, log, but given how her was incentivised, I'd say the BOD could go down as the worst of all time; they practically forced him to push the share price down as low as it'd go!
